mania


Go karts rides + pop and pizza + an arcade = now that's a recipe for manic kids. Everyone had fun though and the injuries were pretty minor. A pretty good day, I'd say, but very tiring!

There's a different kind of mania on the knitting front - it's Russian join mania. That's the join I adopted on the Estonian Starflower Lace blanket and it's working out great on this Umaro blanket as well. In this case, though, I am cutting out one ply on each end at the join to reduce the bulkiness a bit. The resulting joins are undetectable within the fabric of the blanket so I'm pleased. It's also nice to have just two ends to weave in after casting off.

Isn't the Russian join the best thing! (well after wet splicing it is). Anything to help decrease the amount of tails to weave in is wonderful!
